From the Inside Flap
Walter Nugent, University of Notre Dame
"A major achievement, it represents a vast, comprehensive research effort on two continents, using a world-wide background literature and a stunning array of research techniques, all well integrated, on a topic of large scope and significance. The entire enterprise is watched over by an acute, curious, lively mind in notable equilibrium and equanimity, bringing the research to life, fereting out the implications of widely scattered and apparently disparate facts, and reaching many new, significant, and well founded conclusions."
James Lockhart, University of California, Los Angeles
"By far the most original on its subject, this book will become a landmark study in Latin American history."

"One of the truly first-rate studies in the vast migration literature--an authentic tour-de-force."
